    pyramid log cabin?

    I just finished this quilt top from a workshop I took. The instructor called it a Pyramid Log Cabin, but when I googled that just now, what came up didn't match what I made. If anyone knows the real name of it, I would appreciate that information. Just curious, really, no other reason.

    I am pleased with the quilt, though I wish now I had done it in my traditional color....purple.

    Thanks for looking.

    I can’t help you with the name but it certainly suits your quilt - which is beautiful!

    i love it!
    your color choices give it real dimension.
    it looks about 2 feet taller in the center than at the borders.
    maybe that's why somebody called it "pyramid."

    Very pretty quilt in the colors you used. Hopefully, that is refreshing. I know that I am a user of lots of purple. I like the apparent dimension in your quilt.

    I love that pattern! Was it difficult to keep straight? (Meaning not mixing up or turning squares the wrong way, etc.)

    Well, I did mix a few up, even though I was putting it on my design wall before I sewed the blocks together. I kept wanting to just "do it," instead of carefully following the pattern. I did finally conquer it though and only had to rip one block out and turn it around. If I had checked the design more often, I would have made fewer mistakes. I finally pinned a copy of the design on my design wall, at eye level, and that seemed to make it work better for me. It makes a 68 x 68 inch quilt, and my design wall is only 48 inches by 64. That probably didn't help....nor did the fact that I grew tired of making this quilt and just wanted to finish, so I hurried. (lack of patience, really)

    This is exactly the name of it. I ordered and have the pattern. I hope to make it one day.
